Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Mercedes-AMG GLB 35 takes the small-yet-practical GLB and adds much more power and four-wheel drive. Just don’t go thinking passengers in the back will enjoy any full-bore starts.

Pros
Stylish looks
High-class cabin
Impressively quick

Cons
Less fun than a hot-hatch
Cramped third row of seats
Alternatives have bigger boots

By: 
carwow.co.uk

Pros
Gives customers more options to choose from
Won’t lack in power relative to the competition around it
Equipped with the latest Mercedes technology

Cons
I personally like the GLA better
A three-row, seven-seater compact crossover could create problems of its own
Might be more expensive than expected
